Cucumber Yogurt Salad


Vegetarianism? A must? Is it compulsory? Is it if you are not a vegetarian, you should feel guilty? Seriously, I really give a damn about vegetarianism (Mixed Vegetable Soup, Vegetarian Sandwich & Cauliflower Fritters). If I can every now and then, I will and if I can't, please leave me alone. Stop preaching about your profound need for vegetarianism which you believe will make you a holy grain Hinduism. Well and good, good for you. Can I live my life according to my what I believe is best for me? Thank you. Regardless, its a fact as well in my house we prefer, when a veggie side dish is a concern (Kailan Oyster SauceCarrot Poriyal & Indian Style Mustard Greens), we love wholesome vegetarianism instead of adding meat inside for stir frying or even salad. We basically like the concept of totality for a side dish because on the other side, since it will be paired alongside a non-veg main dish, we respect our style to our own vegetarianism. Salads of course, as you know, what else should I say? Especially all about showcasing vegetables? Healthiness, simplicity and easy cooking raw style right? How about this Cucumber Yogurt Salad? Cucumber, onion, yogurt, (Mor RasamBengali Yogurt Fish Curry) coriander leaves and tadbit of spiciness from chillies. Toss all of it and Cucumber Yogurt Salad is on the go (Mango Cucumber Salad & Apple Cucumber Salad). Rawwww!!!


Ingredients
1 small cucumber - remove seeds and sliced into thin stripes
1 red onion - sliced thinly
1 red chilli & 1 green chilli - sliced thinly (with or without the seeds)
3 tbsp yogurt
2 stalks coriander leaves - chopped
Salt to taste

Method:
Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Give a good stir and that's it.
